Darlene! Yes, I think I am lucky, my biggest fear on my hikes is stray dogs, but to be honest I have only met one once, and it wasn't a nasty dog at all! :) Have you heard of the movie/book 'Wild'? This is about a young woman who goes hiking for many miles in the USA. I loved both the book and the movie!
Thank you for your kind comment on my blog, Darlene. I am glad you enjoyed it! :) 'Doggy bags' are a very American tradition to my knowledge. Here it would be unthinkable to ask for one in a restaurant! So sadly I just had to leave what was left of the nice dish. :) Have a beautiful week! 183 days ago
